Hi All,

For all of you lucky loopists who live in the Bay Area (and unfortunately
I don't happen to be one), I just randomly ran across an interesting
website < http://www.artsandmedia.net/expo/ > all about an 
upcoming "Arts" networking event:

    May 4, 2003, 11:00 am-6:00 pm
    Cellspace, 2050 Bryant St., San Francisco 
    No one turned away -- $2 suggested donation.

Apparently on May 4th there is some sort of gathering of "Arts
Organizations" all in one location so that creative artists and 
musicians can network and explore opportunities for organized
support and mutual advancement of various kinds. To quote 
their own blurb about it:

    "The Expo is a very low-cost community connection fair 
    bringing artists together with galleries, studios, arts-service 
    groups and the general public to create a space for education, 
    networking, sharing resources and cultivating music and the 
    arts from the grassroots up. This year more than 80 arts 
    and music organizations will attend, ready to meet and connect 
    with the community."

Sounds like a pretty hip thing to me. Maybe you may know about 
it already and perhaps it isn't as cool an opportunity as it seems
on the surface (to an outsider stuck elsewhere in the middle of
Nowhereville, USA). Anywho here's a "partial list of the exhibiting 

    "21 Grand Venue, ABADA Capoeira SF, ArtHouse, ArtNetwork, 
    ArtSF, ArtSpan, ARTworkSF, AXIS Dance, Bay Area Buzz, 
    Black Rock Arts Foundation , BorderZone Arts, Inc., Comedy

Anywho, I thought it couldn't hurt to spread the word a little.
Too bad this sort of thing doesn't happen more elsewhere very 
often (if at all). For those lucky so-and-sos who happen to live 
within an hours driving distance of this thing it ought to be a 
no-brainer to be sure and try to attend (I would think).

Maybe someone on the list has been there before and has a better
idea of what it's about. Wanna pipe up and share?
